Make Sure You Rake

More work now leads to less headaches in the future
Raking in the fall performs a light dethatching and also helps to remove excess organic debris. Plus, as mentioned above, less leaves on the lawn equals less matting in the spring. And that's a good thing, especially when all that heavy wet New England snow starts to fall.

Snow - Vital to a Healthy Ecosystem

  • The snow that accumulates during the New England winter insulates the soil underneath it, keeping the soil mostly unfrozen and able to absorb water from melting snow.
  • Plus, since trees and other plants are dormant during early spring, most of the water from melting snow entering the soil can infiltrate and recharge groundwater aquifers.
  • Snow also represents a huge volume of stored water that can be released slowly during the spring melt. For instance, 10 inches of snow covering just one acre may hold up to 30,000 gallons of water.
  • Did you know? Once the snow is gone and leaves start sprouting in late spring, the roots of the growing trees and plants then take up most of the their water from summer rainstorms.
